Dr. Paola Sugajara has a passion for dentistry. It enables her to be creative in her approach to patient care, to come up with different ways of treating each person’s individual oral health goals. Her patients’ amazing outcomes, and more important, their satisfaction, are what drive her to push the boundaries of prosthodontics.
Dr. Sugajara lived in several different countries to receive the best education in her field. She lived in Peru, attending the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia for her Doctorate of Dental Surgery; then to Japan to attend Tohoku University, Miyagi for a fellowship in fixed dental prosthesis; and finally to the University of Rochester in New York for her advanced education in general dentistry, general practice residency, and prosthodontic program residency. After all that travel, she is relieved to have settled in Virginia.
Dr. Sugajara is dedicated to providing a high standard of dental care, which is shown by her activity in the American College of Prosthodontists, through which she regularly continues her education.
When she is not at work, Dr. Sugajara likes doing outdoor activities with her friends, going to the beach to enjoy the nice weather in summer, and skiing in winter. She also likes dining out and trying different types of food. When her schedule allows, Dr. Sugajara enjoys traveling and flying back to Peru to be with her family.
